–This Week in Sarasota

The sexiest, funniest, most acclaimed hit of the recent Broadway season, this seductive comedy blends love, lust, and literature, with the ultimate battle of the sexes. Vanda is an unusual young actress who arrives to audition for the lead in playwright Thomas’ adaptation of the erotic novel, “Venus in Fur.” During the reading, realities begin to shift and Thomas finds himself heading into dangerous territory. Does art imitate life? Or is it the other way around? Written by comic mastermind David Ives, this sizzling new play will keep you guessing until the very end.

Venus in Fur is recommended for mature audiences.
